A priest, a treasure, mysteries. A big secret?


A case now known worldwide, several hundred titles of books, dozens of films, sixty years of intrigue, hypotheses, assumptions. A formidable enigma, at the origin of the Da Vinci Code.

For those who are discovering it, but also why not, for those who believe they know it, here is a clear and rigorous summary of the history of the priest with billions by two authors, Jean-Patrick and Jean-Pierre Monteils, particularly authorized by their knowledge. history, their experience and their frequentation of places.
Living in the area since 1986 and having explored every nook and cranny, Jean-Patrick Monteils was the guide – lecturer of Abbé Saunière’s estate for several years. He has also been a photographer and website designer for 15 years.
Jean-Pierre Monteils, is chronologically the second author – in the world – to have written a book on the enigma of Rennes-le-Château, after Gérard de Sède, of whom he was a friend and of which he was also the publisher.
